Tsunamis in Thailand

December 26 2004

On december 26, 2004 a major tsunami hit Thailand and whiped out the city of Koh Raya. A tsunami is usually a large wave triggered by an earthquake in the ocean, that washes ashore and destroys everything in its path. The interesting thing about tsunamis is that there is no severe "weather." Unlike hurricanes and tornadoes it can be a nice sunny day when a tsunami hits. Most of the time they do get a warning in advance but sometimes you never see it coming.
